I would like to know about them too!

Do those have a shorter time to harvest? I was thinking they might be good to try since my onions always get eaten by the grasshoppers before they mature.

Last year, my green onions showed signs of too much nitrogen in the soil, leggy, and bad flavor, so my nitrogen fixing micro-algae must be doing something, but now I must plant the onions elsewhere! They were right in where my squash grew 25 or 30 foot vines the year previously to the onions too!
